I have 2.4.5.A957.
Here's my story..
Supposed to be a costume contest at my store at 9:30PM. I show up at 10:15ish and there's a Verizon employee playing techno on a complete DJ setup outside and like 12 Vz employees inside. Yet there are only 5 customers including me at the store. Apparently, they'd been doing trivia contests all day for the phone and I arrive just in time for the last one. It's down to the 3rd and final round of trivia between me and some kid that's been there all day. He wins*. (It really should have gone to the next trivia question because the way the previous 2 rounds had gone, if everyone got the multiple choice question wrong, and it happened like twice, the Vz employee would say the correct answer and move on to another question. For some reason in the final round: he guesses wrong, I guess wrong, and he's allowed to make another guess with only 2 multiple choice left in the pool. I got screwed, but I was instantly over it and tried to congratulate him as he ran around the store like an idiot hugging all the employees.)
Moments later, I was buying the phone anyway and the store guy screwed up and charged me $326 and wanted to give me $100 in Verizon bucks (account credit?) or a debit card via mail-in rebate. Something about because it was only 11PM our time, the rebate wasn't kicking in the system? Who knows. I was like **** no and I got it for $199.99 as my new 2 every 2.
We got the Droid X for my wife this past Saturday. Sweet phone. But I don't regret my buy one bit. X is humongous and I don't do belt clips so I'd rather not put that ogre of a phone in my pocket. I figure, if something awesome comes out on 4G/LTE within a year, I'll pay the $20 and upgrade. Otherwise, I haven't even felt a need to overclock my R2Droid. Noticeable difference from Droid I.
Can't really see but I got a matching blue case for the screen part of the phone that looks pretty sweet. Will have a clear gel one for the bottom part soon.
Thanks for reading all.
I'm sure motaboy would love a /System dump, or at least /System/app and /System/Framework, and the /system/build.prop file.
All you need to do is root (takes just a few minutes) extract the files, and then you can unroot and your phone will remain stock 2.4.5 (assuming that's what you want).
Would you perform a system dump for us?
Yes I would...even the app and framework folders would be good for now. You can use root explorer, even if not rooted to copy the app and framework folders
Seriously? I had no idea...I've always been rooted so I've never even tried to view those folders unrooted. Nice...makes it easier for someone w/an R2D2 to do it.
Getting my R2 today. I'm reel excited as this is my first droid n when I saw that I knew I had to have it especially since it was time for my upgrade, what a coincidence lol my question is, will I be able to use the one click root method to root it? If not can someone point me in the right direction as I don't want to brick my phone
I am new to this forum but I bought a droid x on the 15th of july and an r2d2 droid 2 for my gf on the 30th (her Birthday). I just rooted my droid x no problem tonight by using this method..
Easier 1-2-3 Droid 2 Root for Windows / Linux / Mac - xda-developers
and following this video...
After I rooted my Droid x, I tried to root the R2D2 droid and it didn't work.
If someone can point me in the right direction to getting this r2d2 rooted I will be more than happy to send you the 2.4.5.a957 system dump.
Love the forums by the way!
Thanks for helping with the 2.4.5 dump.
Thx flea, i'll try that method tomorrow before work if I have time. Is there a free file explorer that I can copy the dump off her r2d2? I downloaded root explorer on my X but I need a free way to get it off hers.
Not sure - my phone is rooted so I can't test - I never tried to access /System w/ a file manager when unrooted. Linda File Explorer and Astro are possibilities.
However, I'd say that if here phone is going to be rooted, then you should have Root Explorer on it as well, I find it an indispensable tool...one of the few paid apps that carries its weight over the long term.
Let us know how it goes...
Ok I got root explorer copied to her phone, what dump files do you guys need and where do I upload them?
You da man!!
Would love to get /System. If that's too big, then:
As to where, I don't have a repository available, but I think Motaboy does...I know another dev (928Droid) would love to get his hands on this as well and he has a web site up and running - I'll PM him and see if he has a place you can put it.
Failing that, you could use something like Mediafire.
So for now, if you can pull /System to your hard drive and zip it and see how big that ends up being that would be very cool.
Update - sounds like they really only need /System/app, /System/framework, and /System/build.prop, so maybe get those into a zip file first.
